George Carroll, independent publishers representative in the Pacific Northwest, has announced that the spring season will be his Farewell Tour. He has sold university press and trade books for more than 40 years, most recently as the principal of Redsides Publishing Services. The publishers he's represented longest--for more than 30 years each--are the University of Chicago Press and Oxford University Press. He began his career in bookselling as a teenager at Pickwick Bookshops in Southern California
But George is not fully retiring: among other activities, he writes about world literature occasionally for Shelf Awareness and is managing editor of litintranslation.com.
